David Cameron Attacks UN Over Lack of Action in Syria

David Cameron has launched his strongest attack on the United Nationsover its inaction on Syria, declaring that the blood of young children is a "terrible stain" on its reputation.

In a display of Britain's impatience with Russia and China, which have blocked a series of UN security resolutions on Syria, the prime minister declared that "no one of conscience" could ignore the suffering.

Cameron, who was speaking to the UN general assembly shortly after the Iranian president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, cited a recent report by Save the Children which said that schools were being used as torture centres.
